22-18-recall-overview

At the 22nd week of 2018, four new recalls were added to the Rapex database. Three of them concern French cars and one recall were announced by Mercedes-Benz. Since June, we have also been tracking motorcycle recalls, whose list has been expanded by the Suzuki brand this time.

Peugeot 4007 and Citroën C-Crosser are related models produced in the years 2007 – 2012. All without exception have a problem with the windscreen-wipers. Water can enter the vent mechanism for the front windscreen-wiper motor, which could result in the failing because of internal corrosion. The problem is so serious that both carmakers are actually recalling virtually the whole production of both models.

Their compatriot Renault Master (2015-2016) is recalled this time because of the wrong software in the on-board engine diagnostics system, which could lead to the engine not functioning correctly. We must not forget that the Master was recalled also in April, because of a poorly tightened steering column cover.

The seals on the front doors around the window of Mercedes-Benz E-Class (2017) may allow water to enter the inner door area. As a result, the pinch protection on the electric window regulators could be impaired or there could be a short circuit leading to a fire.

Motorcycles

Since June 2018, we are also fucusing on motorcycle recalls in our new moto-recalls.eu webpage. At the 22nd week, the Suzuki GSX-R 125 (2016-2018) and the Suzuki GSX-S 125 (2016-2018) are recalled, both due to the risk of loosening the engine mounting bolts and breaking the frame.
